As part of its commitment to influencing positive change in the region through improvements in the Environment, in Health and in Safety (EHS), the Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC), the Dubai Government-owned diversified Energy Group, today hosted its third EHS Conference at the Fairmont Hotel, Dubai.
The conference spoke of improving operative EHS competencies and engagement enhancement, and development and maintenance initiatives that have the power to create transitional changes within the organisation through mindset and behaviour changes in its employees.
Pleased with the company's role in promoting the best EHS practices, Hussain Sultan, ENOC Group Chief Executive, said, "As the leading Oil and Gas Company in Dubai, we are proud to have taken the lead in developing EHS Management frameworks to enhance our employees' competencies and engagement, in turn building and harnessing a healthy, safe and eco-friendly environment."
ENOC is committed not only to making change within its Group of over 30 subsidiaries, but also aims to influence its partners, shareholders, suppliers, contractors and the public it interacts with, to focus on Environment, Health and Safety development.
Moreover, EMGAS, a fully-owned ENOC subsidiary, signed a MOU with the RTA last week to work on a pilot project aimed at studying the transformation of the polluting gas oil engines of the Abras at Dubai Creek to a clean fuel. ENOC Group's EHSQ Compliance Department is also currently working on a project with the Federal Environment Agency (FEA) on a vehicle pollution quantification study, along with Tasjeel, another subsidiary of the ENOC Group. ENOC has been consistently involved in various environmental projects in the past including the major environmental report with the Department of Civil Aviation/Dubai International Airport in 2005.

Each event carries a different theme and this year the theme was "Developing a Resilient EHS Culture Effectively".
